Information for Young Scientist Travel Awards

YOUNG SCIENTIST TRAVEL AWARDS

Early Career Travel Grants are to assist young biophysicists, especially from developing countries, and applications are now open.

These IUPAB awards are intended to supplement, rather than to fully pay travel expenses.

Maximum award is US$1000 and minimum is US$250.00  The awards are not intended to cover the cost of registration to the Congress.

Application Form is available in pdf format on the IUPAB website  under “Forms” in “ABOUT US”.  This will give you all the information necessary to complete an application.

Closing date for applications is approximately three months before the Congress date.

 After that date, a lengthy evaluation process by the IUPAB Executive takes place,  and all applicants will then be advised of the outcome of their applications.

Applicants must present a poster or platform contribution to the Congress, and it is required  that  supervisors approve of their attendance.

The funds are paid in cash at the actual congress, and it is a condition that recipients attend the whole congress.  They must register on Day 1 ) and payments will be made on the final morning of the congress unless in exceptional circumstances.  

Passport or similar photoID must be provided, together with a photocopy to be left with us for attachment to an official receipt form which must be signed by each recipient.

This is a requirement of our Auditors, and payments cannot be made without compliance with this condition.
